With the reopening of parts of Hines VA Hospital to outside organizations, JWV West Suburban Post 54 brought a catered lunch to veterans at the Residential Care Facility. On Wednesday, October 25th, members Larry Malis, Joel Bernstein, Mark Turner, Quartermaster Leslie Turner, and Post Commander Howard Goldstein plated and served lunch to veterans who were able to enjoy their lunch in the dining room. Veterans who could not join us in the dining room were served by hospital staff in their rooms.
Post 54 selected Zazzo’s Pizza & Bar in Westmont to cater the event. Fried chicken, Italian beef, mostaccioli, salad, and rolls were included in the lunch, which was , by all acounts, a great success. After serving the veterans, VA staff and post members consumed the remaining food. A selection of soft drinks were also provided to the veterans and staff.
The RCF (Residential Care Facility) houses veterans whose conditions require substantial care that may not be available in their own private residences.
This lunch was the first since 2019 that Post 54 was able to provide at the hospital. The post expects to return to Hines for another lunch in March or April 2024.
